1. Chicken Parm Pizza

This is for the person who wants to be adventurous but tests the waters first. You’re basically taking a cheese pizza and adding chicken fingers to it. It’s the dish you dreamed about as you approached the snack bar at your local bowling alley as a kid.

2. Philly Cheesesteak Poutine

Feeling braver? This dish takes your Philly—shaved ribeye steak, onion, peppers, mushrooms, cheddar—and adds a demi-glace and a creamy cheese sauce. All that’s placed atop fresh, sturdy French fries, which can withstand the bulk. Wonder what it would be like to put all that inside a roll …

3. Flavor of the Month

The monthly specials here are wild, so pizza purists need not get involved. Example: November’s Thanksgiving pie featured sweet potato cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella, cranberry sauce, stuffing and fried onions. December’s special is even more bonkers: a biscuits and gravy pizza, with peppercorn cream cheese, sausage gravy with beef, mozzarella, cheddar and hunks of biscuits, plus orange-maple ricotta and maple syrup. Really.

FRIES N' PIES 4503 Paradise Road #350, 702-749-7030. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-2 a.m.; Friday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-4 a.m.
